Math-science Materials on Flight
Date: 6/16/96 at 14:13:25 From: Kathleen Cushman Subject: Math-science units about flight We are looking for well-integrated math-science materials on the subject of flight, suitable for use with students in grades 7-9, with plenty of entry points for students who range from beginning to very advanced. Suggestions?

This three-year project offers an aviation science curriculum presented via multiple technologies: live, interactive video broadcasting; written curriculum materials; Internet activities; and videoconferencing. Teachers may choose to participate in the broadcasts, Internet activities, and videoconferencing, or any combination of these." Specifically relevant to your question is project "Takeoff" which you can find out about from the above URL. Maybe other math doctors will have more information for you. :-) -Doctor Sarah, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/
